10 Quotes from Jane Eyre

I’ve chosen ten quotations from Jane Eyre, which is a Victorian novel written by Charlotte Brontë. These are really close to my heart as the book itself. I believe that everybody should read this book.

“There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.”

“I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.”

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”

“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.”

“Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.”

“But life is a battle: may we all be enabled to fight it well!”

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

“I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitments, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into it’s expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst it’s perils.”

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter – often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter – in the eye.”

“The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.”
